The Nemours Reflecting Pool project included a renovation to the pool basin, fountain, and surrounding sculptures and stonework. The fountain features were restored to their original glory, while a new basin and updated pumps/piping allow the fountain system to operate more efficiently. All existing stonework was restored on-site and treated to better withstand exposure to the natural elements. The one-acre reflecting pool, located at the historic Nemours Estate in Wilmington, DE, has 157 jets and holds 800,000 gallons of water.
